A stunning and suspenseful mystery featuring Seattle homicide detective J. P. Beaumont, from New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance.
When a middle-aged nun unexpectedly recalls the grisly details of an unsolved murder she witnessed as a child, Special Homicide Investigation Team member J.P. Beaumont is assigned to the case. Beaumont soon discovers that a band of highly placed co-conspirators are willing to go to any lengths to keep their deadly secrets under wraps.
Meanwhile, with a custody dispute looming, Beau's former partner, Ron Peters, is the prime suspect when his ex-wife is viciously gunned down outside her low-rent apartment. Shocked by the strife that threatens to tear Ron's new family apart and barred from any official involvement in the case, Beau's long-term close connections to Ron and his kids suck him into an ongoing family tragedy.
Faced with personal conflicts and shocking surprises, Beaumont must struggle to solve one of his most baffling and dangerous cases yet.
